Cellar window plant has a new leaf opening up!
Look how long Bertha the plant clipping is now…
She’s almost long enough for Tarzan to swing through the jungle with her. Talk about crazy-town, right?
Yup, right on queue. Bertha’s starting a new branch. Live forever, Bertha babie!
Does Bertha Need to Move?
Bertha is the house plant we grew from a clipping of Bellana’s plant that she calls Bert. We clipped a stem with two leafs off of it back in January and tried to grow a new plant. It worked like crazy.
Bertha is the plant on top of this stand. She has grown all the way down to the floor and now she is starting to spread out further.
Is it time to move her to a new location? Or maybe is it time to put her on a taller stand of some sort? Maybe hang her from the ceiling? This window gets a ton of light in the afternoon and Bertha is growing like a weed even though the other two plants on the stand don’t seem to be growing at all.
Maybe we can put her in the bay window in the living room and she can just grow out in every direction. The downside there is that the curtain is always closed so we wouldn’t be able to watch, and I would be nervous about forgetting to water her.
For the time being though… She’s growing another branch.
Right On Queue
And right on queue, Bellana’s plant clipping is growing a new branch. Excellent.
The Japanese Peace Lilly can’t seem to decide if it is dying or thriving. One leaf turns brown and another one sprouts. It’s crazy.
Bertha is already growing a new branch. The last new leaf has barely even opened and she’s already growing a new one! Holy crap, this little house plant is out of control!
Every time I turn around, Bertha the plant clipping has a new branch growing. I’m so proud of her!
